The world’s number one vendor of smartphone devices has just revealed that it has commenced building the first ever 512 gigabyte embedded Universal Flash Storage (eUFS) memory chip designed for smartphones. The 512 gigabyte (eUFS) chip is made possible through Samsung’s latest 64 layer 512 gigabit V-NAND chips, allowing for never before seen expanded storage capacity without sacrificing any aspect of the overall processing performance.
Most flagship device offerings and high profile smartphone releases of the past few years typically come with 128 gigabytes or 256 gigabytes of built in storage. The South Korean tech giant’s new 512 gigabyte (eUFS) chip easily offers two fold that capacity. And despite the fact that it offers twice the storage, it uses up the same physical space as today’s chips.
Sure, today’s mobile users can always make use of a micro SD card in order to expand their device’s memory space. But having information stored internally in one’s handset offers more than one advantage. And as mentioned earlier in this post, the 512 gigabyte (eUFS) chip allows easy and fast access to your files without compromising processing speed. Samsung’s new chip is capable of reading data at 860 mbps, while writing new information at 255 mbps. According to the official press release, that processing speed is about eight times faster than that of the usual micro SD card.
How big is 512 gigabytes of mobile storage, exactly? Well, as claimed by Samsung, the 512 gigabyte (eUFS) chip can store an estimated 130 files of 10 minute long 4K Ultra HD videos. For some context, note that a 64 gigabyte (eUFS) chip is only able to hold around 13 files of 10 minute long 4K Ultra HD content. Needless to say, owners of current devices right now that have 4K video recording specs will likely be wanting to get that 512 gigabyte (eUFS) chip.
Speaking of which -- Samsung has pointed out that the 512 gigabyte (eUFS) chip is expected to feature in future generation smartphone models. This, of course, begs the obvious question -- which devices exactly will start having 512 gigabytes of onboard memory. There is a very strong likelihood that the South Korean phone maker’s upcoming flagship devices for next year (the Galaxy Note 9 phablet and the Galaxy S9 models) will get first dibs. Fans of other mobile brands will no doubt be wondering if the 512 gigabyte (eUFS) chip will also make its way to other devices (for instance, a number of iPhone models happen to take full advantage of Samsung made memory chips).
